I'll check mine in an hour after work, though I still have less than 100 miles on the car so I don't think the clunk would be present in mine yet if it does show up.
I don't think it has anything to do with the winter package, the kysor shutters or necessarily wheel sizes.

My car has the 16" wheels, the aluminum lower control arms, but not the modified strut tower brace and shorter spacer on the bolts, I also have winter package and the kysor shutters.

I don't believe I currently experience said clunk, but I have to wonder if there was a reason they installed this and if so why wasn't it on all the cars if it was really the cure/ prevention for the tower deforming and causing a clunk or rattle.
